The photographer Steeve Iuncker has conducted several years of research on the transition from childhood to adulthood, questioning the absence of clearly identified "rites of passage" in our secular societies. His images capture acts of adolescents that resemble unconscious rites. Taking risks, seeking oblivion as a form of death and rebirth, flirting with limits, transforming acts: the photographer weaves a subtle visual landscape of moulting and sketches a nuanced portrait of a youth in search of self.

These photographs, taken in a silver camera and then transformed by a four-colour Fresson charcoal print, are accompanied by texts by art historian Caroline Recher and anthropologist David Le Breton.
